Government blamed for not helping resettled IDPs in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 15 March 2010, 07:08 GMT]
Sri Lanka government fails in its duty to offer assistance to the resettled Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Jaffna peninsula, civil society organization said. This has become evident with Jaffna Government Agent’s statement that the UN organizations continue to assist the resettled IDPs supplying dry food rations through World Food Program (WFP) while financial help is given to them by Asian Development Bank through NECORD, they said.

The relief dry food given under WFP to the 24,907 IDP families for a month is hardly sufficient to meet a week’s need of one family, they added.

Meanwhile, 608 million rupees are being directly paid to the IDPs in two stages, sources in Jaffna said.

A sum of 5,000 rupees was paid in the first stage to each family and the second payment of 25,000 rupees per family is being given now by ADB.

4,552 families were given 12 tin sheets for roofing and some of the families were supplied with agricultural implements.
